The Victorian Government has announced a new grants program to fund community legal centres and Aboriginal legal services.
The program will offer $1.3 million in grants to provide family violence-related legal services to vulnerable women. Individual agencies will be eligible for grants of up to $50,000.
A further $1.2 million will be distributed to for the 23 centres who received grants last year through the Family Violence Duty Lawyer Fund.
Further information about the grants program is available at the Department of Justice and Regulation’s Community Legal Centre Grants website.
Applications for funding will close at midnight on 29 July 2016.
